Talk about erratic weather: One day it's so sunny that you're regretting pairing tights with your Rag & Bone boots, and then the next you're stuck hiding out from the unexpected showers under scaffolding. Here at Vogue.com, however, we subscribe to the Boy Scout motto: Be prepared. So-along with emergency makeup stowed in your bag, a pair of flats under your office desk, and the flashlight app downloaded on your iPhone-a girl-on-the-go should also always have an elegant, sturdy, not-purchased-from-a vendor-on-a-street-corner-in-a-blind-panic umbrella on the ready. Not only is it civilized, if you do it right, it can also be incredibly chic. Here are nine stylish options to save for a rainy day.
